RAC: New Deputy Director for Atlantic Region PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   

Radio Amateurs of Canada would like to welcome Frank Davis, VO1HP, as the Deputy Director for the Atlantic Region. RAC Atlantic Director, Dave Goodwin, VE9CB, appointed Frank as Deputy Director on February 8, 2017.

Frank is a very well-known and well-respected Radio Amateur from St John’s and Carbonear, Newfoundland. He has been an Amateur for over 50 years and brings a wealth of Amateur Radio and professional experience to RAC. He will be an important source of sage advice.

Frank is an avid 160m DXer with over 200 countries on “Top Band” and is currently involved in a project to bridge the Atlantic on 144 MHz by terrestrial propagation modes.

Frank’s predecessor as Atlantic Deputy Director was Len Morgan, VE9MY, of Baxter’s Corner, near Saint John, New Brunswick. Len has served RAC and Canadian Amateur Radio with great distinction as a past Atlantic Director and Deputy Director, and he continues to serve as the Manager of the RAC Incoming QSL Bureau. Thank you for many years of outstanding work, Len.

Distracted driving regulations continue to be an area of interest for many Canadian Radio Amateurs. These regulations are made and enforced by provincial governments and can vary considerably from province to province and over time. Radio Amateurs of Canada has prepared a list of links to current regulations in all provinces that have established them. They can be found at: http://wp.rac.ca/distracted-driving-regulations-update/
ISED revises RIC-3 Version 4 and CEPT permits PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), formerly Industry Canada, has issued a revised version of RIC-3, Information on the Amateur Radio Service. It replaces RIC-3 Version 3 that was released in July 2005. Radio Amateurs of Canada welcomes the change as it addresses several long-standing issues pointed out by RAC in the past where the document required updating to address changes in technologies and practices, notably the decision by many administrations to remove the requirement for Morse code qualification for new Radio Amateurs. The new version of RIC-3 can be found online at: http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf01008.html

LCARC preparation for Field Day PDF Print E-mail
Written by VE9MY   

LCARC has decided to participate in Field Day this year. Unfortunately it also happens on the same weekend as the Rona Bike Tour which the Club has been providing communication service to for many years. Steve, VE9XMQ is again organizing the Bike Tour and has a crew to support that event. We have a group of Club members who are available for field day, so the group has decided to get-together and have some fun, discuss HF and make some contacts. Plans are in the initial stages at this point. Field Day weekend is June 25-26th. Please contact Steve if you are able to help with the Bike Tour or Len, VE9MY if you are interested in coming out to Field Day. More information will be posted as plans progress.
